Royal Caribbean’s Navigator of the Seas’ refurbishment includes installing the world’s longest waterslide at sea

Royal Caribbean International has revealed plans to install the world’s longest waterslide at sea on its ship Navigator of the Seas.

The ship will relaunch on 24 February after a US$115M refit.

The waterslide – called The Blaster – will propel a two-person raft through more than 244 m of hills, drops and straightaways including a section that extends over the side of the ship.

“Each Royal Caribbean ship brings a new adventure uniquely designed to deliver on our guests’ preferences from A to Z,” said Royal Caribbean International president and chief executive Michael Bayley. Every detail matters and we’ve mapped out an unmatched combination of innovative features and experiences for this top-to-bottom transformation of Navigator of the Seas.”

Navigator of the Seas‘ multi-million dollar makeover also includes:

  • To Dry For, the first standalone blow-dry bar at sea.
  • Planet Z glow in the dark laser tag.
  • The Observatorium, Royal Caribbean’s escape room.
  • The Lime and Coconut two-level signature cocktail bar.
  • New restaurants, bars and coffee shop.

Navigator of the Seas will be the first in the Royal Caribbean fleet to visit Perfect Day at CocoCay, the debut destination in the cruise line’s recently announced private island collection, opening in May 2019.
